Transfigured Nights 2009
David Blyth is a New Zealand film director and writer, who has made films in every genre. His early films include Angel Mine, which was notorious for its edgy and controversial social commentary, Death Warmed Up, the horror classic and My Grandfather Is a Vampire, a delightful children's film starring Al Lewis.

All of David Blyth's movies have been original and extraordinary, and his latest film, Transfigured Nights, a 48-minute experimental documentary that 'explores the wildly perverse, fetishistic pleasures of web cam mask performance' is no exception. David Blyth's ahead of its time movie focuses on five men from around the world, who talk about 'the addictive charm of masked webcam performance, erotically liberating, they reveal their secret 'female' lives.' Transfigured Nights might generally seem a bit extreme regarding a person's social life, but its premise illustrates what is already happening in the time of the current "credit crunch". When people can't afford to go out and meet other people, they rely on visual cyberspace for their social lives. This is definitely a film of the future: a few wild steps beyond social network sites like Facebook etc.
